Providential break

Yesterday was my last day volunteering at the Park City junior races. Since the weather was beautiful and I had one free hour for lunch, I decided to go skiing. I took about three runs on a couple of lifts and since I still had time for some more, I proceeded to ride another chair when I pushed hard on my ski and my Look turntable heel unit pulled out of my left ski.

Two hundred ski-days later, that can be understood if not totally acceptable. I think the Scott Mission skis on which the bindings were mounted are of pretty bad quality, but what counts is that none of that incident took place when I was barreling down the slope at a high rate of speed. That's what I call a providential break and feel extremely fortunate!
